THE STORY:

How would you like to be part of an organization that helps bring water and electricity to thousands? I have that opportunity. 

I applied, and was accepted, to participate in the Saha Global program which will provide a rural village in Ghana with a small solar electricity business, allowing village inhabitants to charge their cell phones and have artificial light sources, which are safer than their current kerosene lamps. Here is a link to the page on Saha Global's website which has a slideshow with a basic overview of what I have done and what I will be doing in Ghana: http://sahaglobal.org/opportunities-abroad/program-details/. 

All donations are tax deductible. If you donate online, Crowdrise takes 5% of the donation to keep the site running. If you would prefer to donate with a check, you can mail it here: 

Saha Global 
c/o Supporting Strategies 
500 Cummings Center, Suite 357w 
Beverly, MA 01915

Be sure to include my name, Jake Ballard, in the memo section of the check.

I have to raise the necessary money to cover my travel costs and in-country travel expenses, as well as the supplies to start the solar business in the village. The $3,000 that this fundraiser is meant for is only for the program cost and does not cover travel to Ghana. 

The Team: $0 TOTAL RAISED SO FAR
